Warren, who played at Lehi High School before coming to St. George, averaged 19.5 pts on 41.9 percent shooting (16-of-28), including a sizzling 58.8 percent (10-of-17) from the perimeter, along with 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in her two starts.

Warren knocked down a career-high six 3-pointers on her way to 21 points, along with three rebounds, two assists and a steal in Utah Tech’s 92-86 victory win over Oregon back on Dec. 19.

She also became one of 13 Trailblazers in the program’s NCAA era to hit at least six 3-pointers in one game.

Warren then led Utah Tech with 18 points with four more treys, and pulled down three boards, in the Trailblazers’ loss to Oklahoma State last Wednesday afternoon.

Utah Tech (7-5/1-1 WAC) will wrap up its 2023-24 non-conference slate with a cross-country trip to Miami for a road game at Conference USA’s Florida International (8-5) this Saturday.

The game begins at 1 p.m. (ET) at the FIU Ocean Bank Convocation Center.
